E!'s Fashion Police host Giuliana Rancic made a lengthier, more heartfelt apology on E! News Tuesday night for her remarks about Zendaya's hair at the Oscars.

"I want to address something that is weighing heavily on my heart," said Rancic.

On Monday's show, Rancic critiqued the look of Zendaya, a Disney star and former Dancing With the Stars competitor, "I feel that she smells like patchouli oil … or weed."

Zendaya was appalled, saying in a lengthy tweet that it was "not only a large stereotype but outrageously offensive.'

And although Rancic quickly tweeted an apology right back, it didn't seem to be enough.

Among the numerous stars who came Zendaya's defense: Selma director Ava DuVernay, Kerry Washington, Niecy Nash, Khloe Kardashian and Chloe Grace Moretz.

Zendaya has yet to respond to the apologies.
